. welcome to the washington area nissan dealers sports extra. good evening i'm lindsay murphy. thank you for joining us tonight for nissan sports extra. coming up the capitals six game winning streak is on the line in buffalo. and the terps face senior day. but first the latest from redskins park as we inch closer to the redskins monday night affair with philly. it seems less likely that the
team will have brandon banks taking kicks to the house. they were hopeful he would return after his knee surgery during the buy week. but tonight mike shanahan said banks will be a game time decision. so banks appears doubtful but ryan terrain is right on track. he could get the start monday night. he has been slowed by a hamstring injury but he did practice today. and has not suffered any setbacks since sitting out the second half of the lions game. clinton portis does not look well. that doesn't seem as positive. you know, he is a veteran player. he is very competitive. you've got to do what's right for him as well as the football team. but you want to make sure that if he does play, that, you know, you don't set him back the rest of the season. well, we are not going to take a chance if we don't think it's in the best interests of him or the best interests of the team. that's why we are evaluating it right now. >> no sense rushing him back. michael vick was excelling as quarterback when he had to be sidelined for a month in week four. he returns last week against
the colts and racked up 292 yards of offense with as imagine and rushing touchdown. vick is back to form and the redskins know it. >> i'm excited for him. i'm excited for the team. because the guy that was given the opportunity to get back on his feet. and now he is kind of flourishing in the moment. >> he is playing way better than he was in atlanta. you know, the way his game has progressed, you know, he is still running the ball but down field giving the ball to his receiver very accurately. and he will minimize those mistakes. >> reporter: just a quick reminder watch that eagles and redskins on my 20 monday night beginning at 8:30. immediately following the game stay tuned for the nissan post game show. the capitals are going streaky. well, not in that sense but six game winning streak is on the line tonight in buffalo against the sabers. alexander semin has 13 points during that streak but none in six career games visiting the sabers. will that change tonight?
the capitals winners of six in a row facing u.s. goal lip ryan miller. in the third period caps are down 1. nicholas backstrom ties the game at two. we would stay tied and go into overtime. he nets the game winner passed bradon holty who suffers his first nfl loss. the capital lose for the first time since the 28th. we need a quick t.v. timeout. but when we come back, you spoil our homecoming, we spoil your senior day. terps and the news highlights are coming up. right now, verizon has the new samsung galaxy tab.
